The new UMass Amherst Makerspace is the very first phase of the UMass Amherst Makerspace & Maker Network project!

Mission Statement:

TheĀ missionĀ of the UMass Amherst Makerspace is to serve as an interdisciplinary hub for makers on campus. The makerspace is open to students, faculty, and staff of UMass and the Five Colleges and provides training and access to equipment. The makerspace serves as a focal point for the maker community on campus, hosting events and workshops, facilitating connections between makers, and connecting groups with expertise and other maker resources on campus.

We’ve been mapping out the Maker Network here at UMass Amherst, check it out here!

Follow us on Instagram, where we frequently post snapshots of projects and everyday life in the All-Campus Makerspace.



Our current location (temporary until Summer 2023) is the old Astronomy Research Facility, located near Elab and the Gunness Laboratory at the location indicated on the map below.
